Men's Track Opens Season at Home

Dec. 4, 2004

Providence, RI - The Bears fielded a limited squad in their season opener today. Most sprinters, jumpers, and throwers used the opportunity to get back into the competitive groove, while most distance runners are resting from the cross country season.

Freshman Ikenna Achilihu set a 1-inch personal best in the triple jump in his collegiate debut. His mark of 48'2" was enough to rank him 7th on Brown's All-Time Top Ten list. Newcomer Deshaun Mars also set a personal best in the event.

Freshman Jamil McClintock also made his collegiate debut, racing the 55-meter hurdles in a time of 7.97.

Moving up from the dash, Michael Pruzinsky won the 400 meter race in 50.58, a solid time for a season opener on a flat 200 track. Senior Dallas Dissmore took top honors in the 500, clocking 1:04.44 to rank 8th on the Top Ten board.

Junior Ray Bobrownicki cleared 6'9.75" in the high jump to take second. Classmate Steve Bernardi set an 8-inch personal best with his mark of 22'7" in the long jump. Sophomore Grant Bowen won the pole vault to open the season with a clearance of 15'0".

The Brown men's and women's cross country teams held their annual awards banquets Sunday evening, December 5, 2004, at the Sharpe Refectory on campus. The men's team celebrated both team and individual success. Seniors Jeff Gaudette (Biddeford, ME) and Patrick Tarpy (Yarmouth, ME) both qualified for the NCAA Championships which were hosted by Indiana State University in Terre Haute. Gaudette earned his second All-American award by finishing 29th (top 30 are All-American) and Tarpy finished 68th out of 255 runners.

The following athletes were presented awards at the men's banquet. The awards were voted upon by team members. Gaudette won his second consecutive Most Valuable Runner award. Jacob Nettleton (South Orange, NJ) earned the Outstanding Freshman award. The Most Improved award went to sophomore Chris Burke (Dexter, MI). The Unsung Hero award was presented to senior Eamonn O'Connor (Dundalk, Ireland). Finally, Owen Washburn (Amherst, MA) was elected to captain the 2005 cross country squad.

The men will continue action after final exams and winter recess. The next competition will be at Boston University on January 15.
